The Torsion Control System® offers an excellent balance between flexibility and protection. The structure fully carries out the main function of T.C.S.®, which allows lateral and longitudinal movements of the ankle within its physical limits, preventing excessive torsion and the risk of fracture to the joint. The system has two main elements: a body and heel in triple-injection polyurethane, both are sewn to the upper and connected by two lateral and one posterior flexion points. This structure is less bulky and offers the rider greater adherence to the bike without running the rick to becoming caught on anything that protrudes from the body. These structural features also help make the boot lighter.
The Metatarsal Control System® has a polyurethane structure with a flexion point in the metatarsal area that adheres more fully to the foot and gives give the freedom of movement needed for riding, while guaranteeing maximum protection in the event of an accident. The system has been designed to control metatarsal flexion upwards and downwards with two stopping points designed to prevent damage to the joints.
The concept of safety is further emphasised by an internal polyurethane structure connected to the M.C.S.® system to cover the side of the foot, offering maximum protection in case of impact.
This fine material has important features such as long-term waterproofing capacity, excellent resistance to the most extreme temperatures and high resistance to wear and tear. The special microporous structure of the GORE-TEX® fabric in expanded PTFE contains around 1.4 thousand million microscopic pores per square centimetre. These pores are approximately 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water, but 700 times larger than a molecule of water vapour. So while water cannot penetrate the GORE-TEX® membrane in liquid form, sweat (water vapour) can easily evaporate. This results is a completely waterproof barrier that means the boot can be used in all climates, guaranteeing maximum comfort and optimal breathability.

Many boots in the TCX® Touring range have uppers made of “full grain” leather. This is a natural material that offers great comfort and protection against atmospheric agents, as well as being robust and hard-wearing. The material is obtained from the most valuable leather, with a tanning technique that combines craftsmanship and advanced technology and a waterproof treatment. The TCX® touring full grain leather upper is therefore an excellent concentration of performance in terms of comfort, protection and resistance.
